Assessment to program industrial manipulator ABB 120 through flexpendant and robotstudio 6.0 to demonstrate principles of manipulator programming, including coordinate systems, simulating the robot arm and writing a program to get the robot to do a task importing a Solidworks model of the pen-holder into RobotStudio and attach it to the end of the robot.
The robot is programed to write initials using manual jogging – hand coding (e.g. using relative moves) to program the path (NOT importing vector) and imported vector graphics in to RobotStudio and program the robot to follow this path to draw the graphics.
Demonstration of moving the work object to a different position and orientation, not orthogonal to the World coordinate system. It present choices to the operator using the Flex-Pendant screen using the TPReadFK.
